Live workshop: Innovative Characterization of milk coagulation

jan 18 2022

Transformation of milk into yogurt and cheese is an ancestral process established to make milk durable that has become popular with a variety of cheese and yogurts invented every year. Current global demand is constantly increasing, requiring the development of new product types and keeping quality at a high level. Product development is under pressure to provide new recipes in a short time. Food scientists and cheesemakers use numerous additives, such as starters, rennets, and proteins, which have significant impact on the final product properties. In addition, as a natural product, the quality of milk may change with feeding, storage, and origin conditions.

How to characterize sedimentation in the Coating Industry

nov 23 2021

In the coating industry, the sedimentation of pigments and fillers has a significant impact on the properties of coatings at the point of use. Being able to accurately characterize sedimentation is crucial to the development of shelf-stable coatings – yet the majority of sedimentation testing is still carried out by visual inspection. In this article, we take a look at the fundamentals of sedimentation, why sedimentation is important in the coating industry, and how stability analyzers enable accurate optimization of coating formulations.1

Optimizing (Enhanced) Oil Recovery – Tune viscoelastic properties of polymers for drilling and recovery

aug 02 2021

The process of oil recovery needs a wide knowledge of engineering and chemistry, it usually follows specific steps. Each reservoir shows its characteristic properties in terms of formation type, porosity, temperature, salinity, and make it challenging to find the right system for the right reservoir. Starting with drilling to completion and finally the different stages of recovery (EOR) use various materials and additives to improve the productivity of the reservoir. Thus, multiple additives must be adapted for each site. Moreover, during exploitation the conditions can change, e.g. porosity or temperature, and reactivity is needed to adjust used materials.
